A Portion of Thyself

“The only gift is a portion of thyself.”

True. I believe this.

Although I am very fond of my vintage orange kitchen accessories from Steph and fam (plus an all-new blog design!).  And my new work-out pants have revved up my power-walking.  I adore the o-so-flattering jeans Stormie bought me: they fit!…did my legs just get longer?  Did I just get a needed lift? And DP and Tara and the I-POD Touch…omygoodness.  Just waiting for my life’s best song list to get to 7000 or so (well on my way).

Rocky and Jovanie know I need my medium-rare steak and plenty of it.  Off to The Outback I shall go, several times (plus the “Jeanie green” coffee cup?  Lovin’ it!)!  Tre Tre is going to do a photo shoot for me – of anything or anyone I want!  It will be a shoot of my kids and grandkids, of course ~ what else??

Little brother, Joe sent me a book on how to talk southern (they do have their own way) that was a family fav in the 70’s and a 2-set LP by The Rambos, THE Moslander-family music-of-my-life.  My husband loaded me up with clothes and all the things he knows I love and like to have on hand…

I got showered with lots of great, thoughtful, sweet, beautiful gifts for Christmas.  There was way more than I deserved, but I sure love it all.

But really?  It is when I have been blessed with something of the giver, a portion of their heart ~ in thoughtfulness, sweet words, a shared secret, a common memory,  treasured moments and especially their time – that I know I have been gifted beyond my ability to ever repay or comprehend.   To receive something that reveals a part of another person’s heart to me is the greatest gift I could ever hope for. 

Thank-you to all of you who share yourselves with me (your dreams, your fears, your hopes and love…and just ~ you).  My heart is enlarged in the receiving.  And I am…gifted.  Grateful.

  1. Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different
    then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.

    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  2. Excellent blog you have here but I was curious about if you knew
    of any community forums that cover the same topics discussed in this article?

    I’d really like to be a part of group where I can get comments from other experienced people that
    share the same interest. If you have any recommendations,
    please let me know. Bless you!

  3. I am really loving the theme/design of your website.
    Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems?
    A couple of my blog audience have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but
    looks great in Chrome. Do you have any solutions to help fix this issue?

  4. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.

    You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw
    away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you
    could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  5. you’re truly a just right webmaster. The web site loading velocity is incredible.
    It kind of feels that you are doing any distinctive trick.
    Moreover, The contents are masterwork. you have done a wonderful task in this subject!

  6. Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download
    it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple
    tweeks would really make my blog stand out.
    Please let me know where you got your theme.
    Thanks a lot
